An Act of Dog - Museum of Compassion

An Act of Dog - Museum of Compassion One Man Paints 5500 Shelter Dogs, using art for social change.

"Artists have a powerful medium for reporting on the consciousness of our current civilization and can paint visual records of the unpalatable realities of our time. The aim is to move the viewer to feel those realities and engage them in a dialogue for change." ~ AAOD Mission We are paving two parallel pathways: cultivating compassion for animals and raising funds through the sale of our fine art products to give back to rescue groups across the nation, and working with schools to show kids how to use their art for social change. Creativity is as important as literacy, yet we are educating our youth out of their creative capacities. Picasso said- "All children are born artists." He understood that creativity cultivates original ideas that have value. The creative process connects us to what matters and what lights us up, and it helps us enjoy our lives, instead of enduring our lives. We envision the 5500 portraits of shelter dogs in a working/interactive museum, where kids will come to create for an animal cause or other social injustices they are passionate about, turn their art into a product and build social campaigns to raise money and awareness for change. Kids are the unwrapped gifts of our future, and we believe that it is critically important to put meaningful art back into schools to allow them the process of self-discovery and to ignite a desire to become informed about the atrocities in society and to use their creativity to bring them into the light.

Mission: Fronting the revolution for compassionate solutions.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5 star review from Dawn B.:

"These dogs are lost souls that we will not forget. - I love the art work that shows what wonderful dogs that if given a chance would have given their unconditional love to whom ever saw their potential. I always look at the eyes, whether it be a human or animal---they are the window to our souls. Let us do better in the future, they deserve better than these lost souls received."

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5 star review from Andrea Y.:

"IT FEELS GOOD TO BE USEFUL AND HELPFUL - First of all, the t-shirt is beautiful and this is not the typical tee with a machine-screened image one usually gets: Mark does each tee by hand, the material is soft and visually, the image is very bold and sweet. Mark has done a tremendous job. From the moment I heard about An Act of Dog-Museum of Compassiom and saw Mark’s artwork, I was hooked, taken aback by his ainterly depictions and wanted to do something to help. At this time, donating is my small way of being useful to this extremely worthy organization."

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5 star review from Andrea Y.:

"LOVE OUR PUPS - I also donated /purchased this “Dog L❤️V T-Shirt”, too. There was just something in the eyes that tugged at my heart. Looking at images and what touch’s one is very subjective, but if it makes us reach into our pockets and give, monetarily - no matter what - that’s great. And, if it’s not $$ and if it’s volunteering, fostering, adoption, whatever: the animals will benefit."

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5 star review from Andrea Y.:

"COMFORTABLE AND SWEET IMAGE - I loved this sweet image the first time I saw it! I bought this tee for my husband a few weeks ago and he said it was the most comfortable tee shirt he has. After unpacking it from its mailing tube and seeing this hand-created image in person, I wanted one for myself, too. In my opinion, this isn’t just a tee shirt: it feels and looks like a piece of wearable art. Plus: I know my purchase is on going to help this charity, and that’s what I care about most."

HELP US SAVE THE REST. Pit Bull Dogs make the greatest companions and are a wonderful family dog. Sadly, they are being killed by the millions in shelters and discriminated against, around the world, under the heinous, breed-specific legislation (BSL) law that bans or restricts certain types of dogs based on their appearance.
